Hurricane Michael has devastated much of Panama City and Bay County!  The Temple B’nai Israel Board of Trustees is currently assessing  storm related damage incurred by the Synagogue, its congregants, and the entire NW Florida Gulf Coast community.  TBI stands ready to help our families and community rebuild and quickly return to pre-disaster days! 

Temple B’nai Israel, an IRS 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization, is accepting donations at this time to assist those families who are experiencing financial hardship and/or have incurred uninsured losses.  Donations may be made either online or by US mail.  To donate online please click on Hurricane Michael GoFundMe.  For US mail please send your donation to Temple B’nai Israel, Attn: Treasurer, P.O. Box 16556, Panama City, FL 32406.  Donations of any amount will be genuinely appreciated and recognized.

Thank you to those congregants who have renewed their 2018-2019 membership.  Current membership information may be found at membership.  Please help us to sustain Judaism across Northwest Florida.

Welcome from TBI President

Mike StarkmanTemple President, Mike Starkman, the Temple  Board, and members invite you to learn more about our congregation. We currently conduct Lay Led Services once a month and have a Rabbi to lead us during the High Holy Days. Our services are normally the second Friday evening of the month but our schedule is published on this website. The Shabbat service is normally preceded by a communal Shabbat pot luck dinner. The entree (usually roast chicken) is provided by a congregant and attendees are encouraged to bring a side dish, dessert, or beverage to share. Pease join us for Shabbat dinner at 6:00 pm if your schedule allows, or just for the 7:00 pm service. On Saturday of this weekend at 12 pm we conduct a Lunch & Learn. Bring your lunch and join the discussion on the parshat of the week or another topic of religious importance. Later that day Havdalah is celebrated at sundown. Get full details of TBI Upcoming Events to the right or visit our Calendar page. We encourage you to share these pages with friends and family.
